Synopsis by Kaitlin Elise Miller

Chinese-American widow Grandma Wong (Tsai Chin) lives in New York City's Chinatown and decides to head to the casino after a fortune teller predicts a run of good luck. After losing all her savings, she makes off with a mysterious bag of cash that lands her in hot water with a local gang. She recruits a bodyguard (Corey Ha) from a rival gang for protection and struggles to forge an independent life for herself while dodging crooks. Directed by Sasie Sealy.
